MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Sometimes you just want to read a sweet heartwarming Romance, and Hometown Hope is a great romance choice to read. In the small town of Pine Valley, Georgia Anna Delaney is facing selling the bookstore her father started. Hoyt Bradley and his five year old daughter Jess are also members of the Pine Valley Community. Jess hasn’t spoken for several years since her mom passed away, until she hears the bookstore is closing. As Anna starts working with Jess, Hoyt cznt help but watch and be pleased with the results. Trouble is, his past high school experience with Anna has much to be resolved and Hoyt really doesnt want to be too involved with Anna. How in the world with this union end? And will Jess continue to talk?

This is such a sweet heartwarming romance, and being a romance book, we know how it is going to end, but getting to that in is a delightful as well as a difficult Journey. Author Laurel Blount does an amazing job creating realistic characters in a sweet small town setting and writing a sweet story that will warm our hearts long after we finish this book. If you enjoy a good clean romance, this is one you will really enjoy.
